This odd French children’s book drawing by artist Auguste Vimar (which is from the late 1800s or early 1900s and is currently in our Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection) shows a poor cat, strolling down the street, pack slung over his shoulder, getting unpleasantly surprised by a bucket of water, thrown from an above apartment window by a monkey who is, of course, wearing a dress (which begs the question: why isn’t the cat wearing clothes? But we digress). The cat looks pretty darn annoyed in the last panel (he sort of turns into an evil comic book character or something). On this incredibly, incredibly hot Caturday, when we all sort of wish someone would throw buckets of water on us, we thought we’d share. Happy Caturday!
